Autotalks, a provider of V2X (Vehicle-to-Everything) communication solutions and China’s Datang, a developer of C-V2X communications standards and a provider of system solution of C-V2X, have successfully tested chipset-level interoperability of their respective solutions for C-V2X direct communication. The testing took place during the final week of June in Beijing. The interoperability test enabled both companies to validate their solutions and determine that they interwork properly according to 3GPP Rel. 14 standards.
Autotalks’ and Datang’s successful interoperability testing is the world’s first based on the latest CCSA (China Communications Standards Association) standard draft. The testing is viewed as a milestone and demonstrates the readiness of the standalone PC5 solutions of Autotalks and Datang. This achievement is a stepping-stone towards the expected wave of C-V2X deployments in China, since having vehicles with different chipsets communicate with one another, is a prerequisite for mass deployment of C-V2X.
